The first major development in computer technology was in 1946, with a vacuum tube-based computer model that was produced to aid in military efforts. Since the invention of computers and the internet, technology including operating systems, platforms, hardware and software has rapidly advanced. Mobile computing technology has redefined how nations communicate as well as how information is sent and received. From laptops to netbooks to smartphones, e-readers and tablets, the options as of 2014 are endless and mounting.                                    

  ♥People use mobile computing in every aspect of life, whether it is to send a quick email, upload and share photos or read entire books. Computers no longer exclusively belong to a few select businesses; rather, computer technology is easily accessible to every person, young or old. Even those who have disabilities can utilize computer technology, thanks to developments in assistive technologies.

Technology (“science of craft”, from Greek τέχνη, techne, “art, skill, cunning of hand”; and -λογία, -logia[3]) is the collection of techniques, skills, methods and processes used in the production of goods or services or in the accomplishment of objectives, such as scientific investigation. Technology can be the knowledge of techniques, processes, etc. or it can be embedded in machines, computers, devices and factories, which can be operated by individuals without detailed knowledge of the workings of such things.

The human species’ use of technology began with the conversion of natural resources into simple tools. Theprehistoric discovery of how to control fire and the later Neolithic Revolution increased the available sources of food and the invention of the wheel helped humans to travel in and control their environment. Developments in historic times, including the printing press, the telephone, and the Internet, have lessened physical barriers tocommunication and allowed humans to interact freely on a global scale. The steady progress of military technology has brought weapons of ever-increasing destructive power, from clubs to nuclear weapons.

Technology has many effects. It has helped develop more advanced economies (including today’s global economy) and has allowed the rise of a leisure class. Many technological processes produce unwanted by-products, known as pollution, and deplete natural resources, to the detriment of Earth’s environment. Various implementations of technology influence the values of a society and new technology often raises new ethical questions. Examples include the rise of the notion of efficiency in terms of human productivity, a term originally applied only to machines, and the challenge of traditional norms.
